Had a good weekend. It was a much needed getaway. Drove to Ocean City on Saturday, which was wonderful despite getting caught in traffic on the way there. Yeahh, it was a lot of driving for one day. Ocean City is hella trashy - I love it! You have no idea how many "come at me bro," and "cool story bro, tell it again" T-shirts we saw. And don't get me started on the sweatpants with DTF printed on the booty <3. I also kept seeing Taylor Gang or Die merchandise all across Baltimore which confused me. Anyway the beach was great. There were some serious waves - the biggest I've ever seen in the Atlantic, actually. There was one wave that snuck up on me and I wiped out badly - I my body was a rag doll getting tossed around the ocean floor for a few seconds. I managed to hang on to my bikini bottoms, but there was some nipple peeking when I surfaced. Fortunately nobody but J saw :P
Met up with the old Gang. Said my goodbyes to V, who's going off to Case next week. Also saw T for the first time in 3 years. Got to meet her fiance who was super chill- very social, and incredibly easy to talk to. They're getting married in November and I'll be getting an invitation in the mail. Sadly I'll have grad school classes to worry about then and the wedding is way out in Texas somewhere, so I'm not sure I can make it. It's exciting in a way - the first of my college friends getting married. She's a couple of years older than the rest of us, but still.
Lab's going better. Got to see some crazy shit in the chemistry lab we're collaborating with. I made an ass out of myself trying to put on their ridiculous body suits for the fancy dust free clean room where they print their surfaces. You have to change while standing on this sticky mat without letting any part of the suit touch the ground; this requires balance skills I do not possess. Dissections today went pretty well too. SO much easier than flies or brains..or fly brains. I think I did pretty well, though we didn't need to worry about morphology for this particular experiment which made life a lot easier.
Feeling run down recently. I can't keep going to sleep at 1:00 and getting up at 7:00, then being on my feet all day, then staying out at night until 1:00. Ugh. Being an adult blowwws.
C's supposed to fly in on Thur (90% sure she had originally told me Friday..) but she hasn't replied to my email about picking her up at the airport and her FB status tonight was "of course I got non-refundable airplane tickets." Uhm, something you'd like to tell me C!?
I am in desperate need of groceries. Gonna try to wake up at 5:30 tomorrow so I can walk to the supermarket and back before it gets disgustingly hot.
Bedtime. I'm not in an appropriate sate of mind to appreciate Blue Velvet right now anyway.
